All the viewer needs: How user-centered design helps to develop and operate an open repository for audiovisual media

Margret Plank, Bastian Drees, Abiodun Ogunyemi

Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology, Germany

The amount of audiovisual material in science is rising sharply. At the same time, adequate repositories for this particular type of research output are rare. Neither text and data repositories nor platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo can meet users' needs for scientific audiovisual materials. Audiovisual repositories have to provide innovative tools as well as a stable and reliable infrastructure.

To meet the user needs the TIB AV-Portal was developed based on a user-centered design approach. Today it offers automated video analysis with scene, speech, text and image recognition and provides free access to approximately 18,000 videos from science and technology. Our presentation will show use case scenarios of audiovisual material in research and education from recent user interviews. Moreover, the TIB AV-Portal is presented as a reliable repository for scientific videos and the potential for further development and lessons learned will be discussed.


What do users expect from image repositories? – Focus group impressions

Lucia Sohmen, Ina Blümel, Lambert Heller

Leibniz Information Center for Science and Technology, Germany

The NOA project collects and stores images from open access publications and makes them findable and reusable. During the project a focus group workshop was held to determine whether the development is addressing researchers’ needs. This took place before the second half of the project so that the results could be considered for further development since addressing users’ needs is a big part of the project. The focus was to find out what content and functionality they expect from image repositories.

In a first step, participants were asked to fill out a survey about their images use. Secondly, they tested different use cases on the live system. The first finding is that users have a need for finding scholarly images but it is not a routine task and they often do not know any image repositories. This is another reason for repositories to become more open and reach users by integrating with other content providers. The second finding is that users paid attention to image licenses but struggled to find and interpret them while also being unsure how to cite images. In general, there is a high demand for reusing scholarly images but the existing infrastructure has room to improve.


Developing technical infrastructure and services for diverse usage scenarios based on multimedial linguistic data

Hanna Hedeland1, Daniel Jettka2

1Hamburger Zentrum für Sprachkorpora, Universität Hamburg, Germany; 2Institut für Finno-Ugristik/Uralistik, Universität Hamburg, Germany

The Hamburg Centre for Language Corpora (HZSK) is a research data centre at the University of Hamburg focussing on spoken multilingual data and data from research on linguistic diversity and language documentation. The HZSK provides digital infrastructure comprising a research data repository and supports researchers with advice and training in all questions related to data management across the research data lifecycle. The presentation discusses how the complex digital infrastructure of the HZSK has emerged, in compliance with standards and best practices within research data management, and how its components provide functionality for dealing with various user needs and requirements for specific usage scenarios.


Searching for Sustainability – Avalon in the Samvera Community

David E Schober1, Jon Dunn2, Ryan Stean1

1Northwestern University, United States of America; 2Indiana Univerisity, United States of America

This presentation will focus on Northwestern University and Indiana University’s continued work toward a sustainable model for support, maintenance, and development of the Avalon Media System - an open-source, Samvera-based repository for audio and video jointly developed since 2011. Over the last two years, the team has focused on widening engagement with and commitment to the Samvera and IIIF communities as well as developing wider developer interest by re-basing the product on top of Hyrax and developing a modular architecture.
